Did you guys get a response to your EG orders yet?
I placed one early last week, sent a few emails, and nothing yet.
Posting here is your best opportunity to get service from Empire (aka SPHIATT). Several threads have been posted with people noting an absence of customer response to emails/phone calls.
Posting in a BGG thread typically gets a quicker response and a "mistakes were made. it won't happen again" apology.
